Experienced Estate Planning Attorney in Stratford, NJ

Wills | Powers of Attorney | Advance Directives

Whether you have a substantial net worth or you are just starting your career, it’s wise to have an effective estate plan in place. The simplest and often most effective way to meet your needs is to prepare and execute a valid will. It’s also a good idea to set up a power of attorney, as well as an advance directive, to address the possibility that you may not be capable of making your own decisions. To fully protect your interests, you want to work with an experienced and knowledgeable lawyer.

At the David M. Lipshutz Law Office, in Stratford, we bring more than 30 years of practice experience to people throughout Camden County and the surrounding communities. Attorney Lipshutz is a sole practitioner, so you always have direct access to your lawyer. We understand that every legal situation is unique, and we’ll take the time to learn exactly what you need to resolve any legal concerns. We won’t waste your time or your money if we don’t think we can help.

The first step toward easing your mind—come in for a consultation. Send us an e-mail or call 856-627-1990 to arrange a meeting.

Wills | Powers of Attorney | Advance Directives

When you hire us to draft and implement your will, we will take the time to learn the specific details of your financial situation, as well as your goals. We will carefully craft a document that clearly instructs your loved ones how to distribute your assets. If you have minor children, we’ll work with you to identify potential guardians, and ensure that your will provides for the care of your children in the event of your death. Attorney Lipshutz is intimately familiar with the legal requirements in New Jersey for establishing a valid and enforceable will, so you can rest easy, knowing that you’re in good hands.

We will also prepare and put in place other documents to protect you in the event of a disability or other incapacitating event. We draft:

  • Powers of Attorney—documents that legally transfer authority to make legal, medical, financial and other decisions to the person of your choosing
  • Advance Directives (Also Known as Living Wills)—documents that instruct medical institutions and caregivers regarding the types of treatments you do or do not want in end-of-life situations. These documents also appoint a person of your choice to make decisions for you in these critical situations where you are unable to communicate.

After much reflection, I have decided to retire from the practice of law, after 43 years, and to close my office, effective 12/31/23.

There are a number of reasons, including substantial health concerns in my family (not me), I am needed elsewhere.

It is also my age. I turn 69 shortly.

It is just time.

I therefore cannot accept any new cases, as I do not want to start a matter I probably cannot finish.

I have spoken with several experienced family law attorneys who I respect, who are willing to accept referrals from me. If you want names, please let me know.
